From My Flesh I See God: Embodying the Amidah
Hosted By: Institute for Jewish Spirituality
When the biblical figure, Job, declared “from my flesh, I see God,” he was describing a dynamic and intimate connection with Divine Presence, experienced directly through his body. Movement, embodied sensation and physicality are all essential elements of Jewish prayer practice – doorways into sacred encounter, awareness, and authentic expression. In this four-week course, the Institute for Jewish Spirituality will ask and explore: How does the body in both stillness and movement express authentic prayer? What happens as the prayer emerging from the heart expresses itself not only through the lips, but also through the arms and legs, through bowing or uplifted spine? How can we deepen our prayer through physical gesture, presence, and posture? The course includes a live weekly practice group with Rabbi Myriam Klotz.
